Mark Thomas

The only looney leftie left in town is appearing at South Street.

As part of his show he has a prize of a demo outside the Houses of Parliament. These are my entries:

1) The Martin Salter MPs’ Expenses Protection Demo?
“Save Our Expenses From Scrutiny”, “Say No, To Publishing Constituents’ Letters Unless It’s In My Interest.”

2) People of Happisburgh Say YES to More Landfill Demo“What Do We Want? Landfill”, “When do we want it? NOW”, “Where do we want it? Down on the beach, between our houses and the shoreline, before our village is washed away”.

3) Apathy Party Demand More Representation on Local Councils Demo With up to 63% of the vote on most council, the electorate is obviously being ignored. "What Do We Want? Whatever! When Do We Want It? Am I Bovvered?"

I’m sure I can come up with a few more.

Normality Returns

Gareth was on the Politics Show after winning in Katesgrove. Anneliese 'Who She?' Dodds for some reason was also on there. Must have been nice for her to be let out of the Singleton-White's attic for the day. She can't stop nodding. Most bizarre!

But getting back to the real world, it was off to the Emirates for Arsenal v Chelsea. Cashley Hole somehow managed to fake an injury so that he would miss the game. How convenient!

He's Only Gone An' Bleedin' Dun It

I'm definitely not used to this! It's usually a demoralised crash after the local elections. Two months of slog with nothing to show for it and then we win two wards in one go! And that’s despite the bussing in of South Oxfordshire activists and a phone bank blitz.

Shame about my result in Abbey though. Can't win everything!

The Hills Are Alive...

The local elections are beginning to take their toll! I've delivered Alpine Street three times, 'Good Mornings', 'Knock Ups' and late 'Knock Ups'.

Had a delightful chat with Gul Khan at the polling station this morning as we were both on the early bird shift at Katesgrove School. He didn't apologise for the war in Iraq and still claimed that the one way IDR was better than sliced bread. I have my suspicion that he liked the idea because it would put £1 on the cost of some taxi journeys from the station!

However, I'd like to thank him for the cup of tea. It was f-f-f-f-f-f-freezing!
